Family Concerts


In 2024, we introduce a new free Family Concert - a collaboration between our Bach & Brews musicians, our Emerging Artists, and the trailblazing youth choir, VocalEssence Singers of this Age (VESOTA).


Join us along the banks for Lake Minnetonka for an eclectic program that will feature comical  staged music for vocal soloists and string quartet, as well as songs in collaboration between VESOTA, our Emerging Artists, and members of Bach Roots Festival.

This concert and the song texts are especially tailored for little people and the adults in their lives. Bring your curiosity and dancing shoes!
